Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Word to the wise.

Do not attempt to disparage the perfect diamond mix of athletics and chess that is real baseball while i'm present.  Watching guys spit?  Do you think that could be because it is absolutely necessary to keep your mouth moist so you can relax, relax until the moment you must explode with concentrated milisecond effort? why do you think the old guard chewed tobacco, and the new millionaires chew bubble gum? why do you think that sunflower seeds w/salt are a stable of every dugout for the last century?

Plus the game is played every day, 162x/yr. in summer. (Old guard used to play with wet lettuce in their caps, to keep the head wet and cool.)
